Eye Spy : Rianne Geltink

Serene - BG Konnichiwa

Serene - title - BG Konnichiwa

Talk about an intricate design!  We’ve spied many projects using our Konnichiwa collection as of late, but this one definitely had us taking a second look.  So many details and personal touches included on a single page.

Rianne explains, “Since I can remember I have leg intrigued by the fascinating world of Japanese geishas. Arthur Golden’s Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favorite books or alltimes. When I saw the new collection by Basic Grey Konnichiwa I knew I wanted to scrap a geisha photo. Unfortunately I have never been to Japan, so the picture is not taken by me. I SEEM to be in a fussy cutting scrappy phase, ’cause again a lot of this layout is cut from the PP of the collection: the lantern garland and the branches. The large lantarns are stamped by the serenity Bo Bunny stamp set onto the PP or Basic Grey and then cut out. I got inspired by the beautiful decoration of the geisha hair, so I thought I could make the same garland pink scars from inchies whcih I then folded and attached together with a thread. The pink & red flowers are created from fabric and for an extra touch I added Japanese chopsticks all which I had lying in my kitchen drawer. The title is made from alphas all which I glued on a piece of acetate, which is glued to the chopstick.”

Rianne – Congratulations on being selected as our Eye Spy feature this week! We’ll be sending you some BasicGrey product your way as our way of saying thanks.

    Extra Inspiration : Plumeria | BasicGrey Blog.
    And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of
    these comments look like coming from brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to keep
    up with anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal sites
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
